This request has to do with VST plugin naming. You guys were awesome for integrating this feature so quickly.

However, a quick tweak to this would make things much easier when dealing with a lot of plugins.

First, as an example, I just installed all of the popular Airwindows plugins. There are approximately ~320 of them.

When I install new plugins, I prefer to add a vendor prefix or developer name before the plugin name so that they sort nicely. This is really helpful with big plugin bundles like Airwindows or Waves, etc.

Right now, you have to rename each plugin individually, one by one.

My feature request is to allow the user to multi-select plugins, hit F2 (or some kind of button), and then type in a prefix that will get applied to all of the plugins at once.

Here is how the process looks now:

Referencing the video, basically, all I want is to be able to rename all of these plugins at once. (I.E. Insert an "AIRW " prefix to all selected plugins)

That's it!

I appreciate any consideration greatly,


Thanks for reaching out.

This feature will have logical problems because it is hard to edit the prefix after adding it. Therefore, we prefer you to sort the effect by the vendor as an alternative.

Best regards.


Thanks for even considering the request. I appreciate it greatly.

I don't want to push back too hard but couldn't you just enable multi-select for plugins (hold shift), select the appropriate plugins, and then click a button to add a prefix?

And then if/when you want to remove the prefix, just again shift multi-selct the plugins, and click a button to restore the plugin name to its default.

I just finished renaming about 300 Waves plugins by hand, and let me tell you, that wasn't a fun experience. Undecided



We have released a new version that supports adding a prefix to effect names and resetting the effect names.

However, you may have to rescan the effects to make the resetting operation works.


Please check it out.

Best regards.
